The challenge is to bring order to the visual chaos that confronts our everyday existence. This is the difference between traditional photography and traditional painting. The painter begins with a blank canvas and adds what detail he wants for the effect, message or look he desires. The photographer has an overabundance of detail and must find some means to abstract it. The new emerging medium of digital art combines these two approaches. The look can be that of a photograph or traditional brush art. The final work can be on traditional photographic paper, watercolor paper, canvas or other mediums. I use the medium of Digital Art/Photography to explore the everyday world around me that most people walk past without looking at

Vintage Photographs by a Great Aunt and Cousin

A photographer since 1960, I was a staff photographer for the award winning student newspaper of The University of Miami. While there I was influenced by Wilson Hicks, former Picture Editor of Life Magazine. and Supervisor of Student Publications. After serving in the Army as a photographer, I returned to McMinnville and worked as a technical photographer at Arnold Engineering Development Center

In addition,I have won numerous State and Regional awards, edited Warren County Tennessee: Pictorial History, and have had numerous photographs published on the cover of Spoon River Poetry Review. I have also been published in Photographer’s Forum: Best of Photography. I find inspiration in everyday life in a small town, pushing the frontiers of both photography and digital art.

What is Art?

Google Images part 2

In this previous Journal, I explained the procedure for using the advance search feature of Google images to determine what images may not be shared, modified or used commercially. / This blog is an example of what can happen when those who know better do not exercise “due diligence” / Not only did they end up paying what they regard as an outrageous amount to settle out of court, …

Works in the public domain may be used freely without the permission of the former copy…
